National Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Oye, has urged Ndigbo world wide to embrace the party, pointing out that APGA is the only hope for the political integration of Ndigbo in Nigeria.
He reminded Ndigbo that currently, they have no place in the politics of Nigeria and beckoned on the people to speak with one accord as well as take decisions which would improve the fortunes of the South East in the nation’s political equation.
Oye, who came up with this while addressing party faithful in Aba believed that APGA provides the best political option for Ndigbo to realize her dream of producing a Nigerian President than other political parties.
He said, “Ndigbo should know that charity begins at home. If all Igbo people are APGA, how will anybody steal our votes? We don’t vote in one direction, that why there is confusion. If all of us vote APGA, it will be difficult for anybody to rig elections in the South East.
“APGA is the party for Ndigbo. Unless we start from home and win the five South East states for APGA, we won’t make any progress. Every Igbo man should know that Ndigbo are nowhere in Nigeria’s political equation.
“Ndigbo should have produced the Senate President, but we failed to put our acts together and the position went to the minority.
“Ndigbo should shine their eyes. Unless Ndigbo wins the five South East state for APGA, it would be difficult for an Igbo to emerge Nigerian President. 2019 is another election year. We must get things right.”
He insisted that APGA has continued to wax stronger in every part of the country and assured that the party would control the South East zone in 2019.
He continued, “We came to office in June 2015 and since then; APGA has spread to every nook and cranny of the country. In Bayelsa state, we have two State House of Assembly seats.
“In Taraba, we have one Assembly seat and one House of Representatives seat. In Anambra, we have 28 out of 30 seats. In Abia state, it should have been 24 out of 24, but they stole it and left 11 for APGA. In Niger state, we have seven elected councilors. In 2019, all the states in the South East will be controlled by APGA,” concluded he.
